Group says vote “NO” on passage of H.R.1, which protects the political class at the expense of everyday Americans.
ARLINGTON, Va. – Americans for Prosperity issued a Key Vote Alert on Monday, urging members of Congress to vote “NO” on passage of H.R. 1, which protects incumbent politicians, politically weaponizes the FEC, creates restrictions on political speech, and discourages people from supporting nonprofit organizations.
While H.R. 1 contains some positive provisions, notably the restoration of voting rights for formerly incarcerated felons, this policy should be broken out and considered on its own merit and in each state. Instead, H.R. 1 muddles the worthy goal of expanding voting rights with the threat of stripping individuals of their choice to keep their beliefs private from the government, which would ultimately discourage people from giving to charitable and civic organizations.
In the Key Vote Alert issued to House lawmakers today, AFP Chief Government Affairs Officer Brent Gardner writes:
